Accommodation during the Everest base camp short trek

The adventure of trekking in the Himalayas is not complete without food and accommodation. A great trekking trip will be ensured by the correct diet and cozy accommodations. Every backpacker should become familiar with the meals at Everest Base Camp short trek before beginning their journey.

Your food intake will determine how much energy you have to expend when trekking in the majestic Himalayas. Homey meals and cozy lodging are available at the tea houses along the trail. There isn’t much variation on the menu, but the cuisine is really great. On the journey to Mount Everest base camp, meal selections, dining, and special diets are crucial topics that will be covered in this article.

 Meals

The food items are transported by yaks and porters to the settlement along the path because the beautiful trek’s track travels through a desolate landscape. Three meals will be provided to the hikers each day. Each guest chooses their own meal at every restaurant we visit, whether we’re in Kathmandu or on our journey. Before and after our trip, we have breakfast buffets at either the expensive hotel or the regular tea houses. They provide a vast selection of traditional Indian food as well as western-style eggs, bacon, toast, bread, fruits, and yogurt.

On the days of your Everest base camp short trek, there is a substantial continental and local cuisine selection, and visitors can choose anything they like. as we trek and place our orders at the tea houses. You can enjoy the breakfast in your own way. Various eggs, toast or Tibetan bread, fried potatoes, and muesli with milk are all available. In addition, there are other options, such as pancakes, cereals like oat porridge (mainly cornflakes), etc.

In fact, family-style meals are possible throughout lunchtime. You should take any dietary limitations you have into account while planning. If ten or twelve people enter a tea house and order something different from the menu, it will take a very long time for their small kitchen to prepare. We send one of the sherpa men ahead to speed ahead and get to the teahouse before the rest. They’ll place the order, and we may fulfill it with a selection of fried noodles, egg-fried rice, momos, and chips like fries and veggies. It will help you to ensure that you enter and exit tea houses without having to wait for a few hours.

In addition, you may have dal bhat, a traditional Nepali dish that includes rice, lentils, spinach, veggies in curry, and pickles. Additionally, they provide pizza, burgers, noodles, and spring rolls along the routes. Garlic soup is an excellent food to avoid altitude sickness at higher altitudes.

Enjoy the local food Dal Bhat

When we arrive at the tea house in the afternoon, we usually set out some snacks, such as popcorn, prawns, tea, hot beverages, and the like, so that guests may have some snacks before dinner. Everybody’s dinner orders will be taken by the servers, after which you can place additional orders for a variety of foods. Furthermore, dinner gets served in the dining area around the large stove.

Visitors often don’t eat meat or chicken in those upper tea houses because there are fewer refrigerator options in the upper valley above Namche market. They are concerned about the safety of the meat. They provide a wide variety of foods, including tiny pizzas, egg fried rice, veggie fried rice, and momos, which are essentially dumplings filled with either veggies or potatoes.

More often, you’re going to have dal bhat, a typical local cuisine from Nepal. In dal bhat, rice and occasionally potatoes are added to a vegetable-and-lentil soup. There are a few fewer options for vegetables. Of course, you can enjoy a variety of hot beverages, including tea, coffee, hot chocolate, ginger tea, and lemonade. You’ll always consume a lot of carbohydrates. Carbs are beneficial for altitude, especially in high-altitude villages. Carbohydrates are abundant in potatoes, rice, pasta, and other similar foods.

You can also bring some snacks and chocolate from home. These products will be good for snacking in the afternoon and on the  Everest base camp short trek itself. Many times, people will also bring small candy bars and other products. Trail snacks may be some chewy things, some other bars, or cliff-type stuff. The menus don’t change all that much as we ascend the valley. Therefore, having some variety and other tasty snacks can help you balance out your munching for nutrition and energy over our longer trekking days.

After your Everest base camp short trek, we do plan a special celebration meal at the request of the guests. You are welcome to throw a large barbecue or anything else to honor our adventure and our trek to the Everest base camp short trek.

Tea house lodge how it looks alike

What exactly is a teahouse? What does a teahouse actually do? People generally check the itinerary while signing up for the luxury Everest Base Camp short treks. Of course, they want to look at the accommodations. While on the hike itself, we stay in teahouse lodges, as compared to the luxurious lodgings we use in Kathmandu. Staying in a teahouse and being greeted by a family and served tea or coffee is a warm experience. They’re usually owned by families and offer simple accommodations that they have built to assist in tourism. In Nepal, drinking tea is a fairly common practice, which is where the word “teahouse” actually originates.

One of the good things about our Everest base camp short trek is that we get to choose the nicest teahouse accommodations. The tea houses that we stay in will be really beautiful lodgings because they are situated down in the valley. They will have their own room with a bunk bed and a basic space to lock up their personal items. The tea houses in the lower valleys, like in Phakding and Namche Bazaar, will all feature electricity to charge your gadgets, hot showers, and bathrooms that are next to your bedroom. There, the comfort level is excellent.

It will get a little more undeveloped as we ascend the valley above Tengboche and Dingboche. Showers won’t be available in your rooms. You must stay two nights in Pheriche. They will all have a common area at the end of the corridor where they will make a fire, have dinner, and gather as a group. Your basic lodging will be further down the hallway. Your room will have a toilet but no shower.

As we get higher, and eventually when we get to the very last two villages, which are Gorakhshep and Pheriche, the teahouses are pretty rustic. You just have a bunk in your room and a place to lock your belongings, but the shower or the toilet is at the end of the hall. So, because we’re lower in the valley, you consider the teahouse; you get a room with an attached bathroom, which also has hot showers and a bedroom with a charging station for your devices.

The final two settlements, where you arrive at a high altitude, have quite a basic lodging. In addition to using our solar electricity and solar batteries to recharge people’s gadgets, we can locate some plugs behind the counter that are accessible for a little fee. Many tea shops also provide Wi-Fi for a small fee.

Altitude Sickness

While trekking to the Everest Base Camp, trekkers may experience altitude sickness. Although trekkers frequently experience altitude sickness, major altitude sickness needs rapid attention and should not be ignored. Our trip directors and guides have a strong background in first aid and comprehensive training. We implore you to alert your group leader and guide as soon as you see any indications or symptoms.

The trek guide will advise you on ways to prevent altitude sickness. The easiest method to avoid altitude sickness when hiking is to take your time and drink lots of water (at least 3–4 liters per day). The only treatment for severe cases of altitude sickness is to quickly descend.

Please be aware that, depending on your health, your group leader may decide to stop your journey. Please remember that some people are more prone to becoming sick from being at high altitudes than others.

You need to be aware of the signs and symptoms of AMS in order to recognize it. They are-

Dizziness

Upset stomach

Tiredness

Headache

Nausea and vomiting

Loss of appetite

Sensing instability

Difficulty sleeping

Breathing problems

elevated heart rate

You need to take prompt preventive action if you experience any of the symptoms, such as: 

Decent at a lower altitude (if possible).

Don’t climb up the hill until 48 hours

Rest solely until you feel better.

Have proper acclimatization.

Don’t work out or exercise.

Avoid smoking

Avoid alcohol

Having garlic soup or hot ginger tea can be helpful.

Take in a lot of water.

Take more oxygen if required.

Take medication to prevent illness.

If the symptoms worsen, take Diamox as directed by your doctor.

 Please Note: You will need to be carried to Kathmandu on a helicopter for deportation if your health doesn’t improve further over the following 48 hours. Therefore, be sure to obtain insurance that will cover the expense of reusing your helicopters.

 Average Group Size

So, what size groups would you join if you went on the Everest base camp short trek? We do keep our groups quite small, with the exception of the Himalayan trek. Unless it’s a really large private group on your own. As you are aware, our trekking groups typically consist of six to eight people. From our perspective, this keeps things more private.

There have been some really large groups on the Everest base camp short trek, but they only have one guide. However, we believe that a smaller group is more personal, and you get to know your guides better since they are wonderful people. More personal interactions occur in smaller groups. And what we discover is that reaching the Everest base camp requires teamwork, and getting it is difficult.

It’s wonderful to have a team to assist you in getting back up on your bad days when you’re feeling a little off and, you know, getting a little down in the house. The closer your team is, the more likely you are to reach the Everest base camp.

However, since it is your journey, you are free to select the people you go with. You may go on a trek with your friends, coworkers, or family and have a great time.

Travel Insurance

While we have an excellent program for trekking to the Everest base camp short trail, and your guides have years of expertise in bringing people in and out safely, it’s always necessary for us to have evacuation procedures. We want to make sure that our guest is comfortable on the journey. If they become ill or are unable to continue the journey, it is necessary that they be safely taken to a lower altitude or back to Kathmandu, or they can continue traveling if they choose.

Therefore, before beginning the walk, we suggest that you get trustworthy travel insurance. An insurance coverage called travel insurance can support you if you are evacuated.

On the Everest base camp short trek, there might be a risk of getting injured due to a twisted ankle, a high altitude issue, or even the fact that your body is not adjusting to the altitude well. We take every precaution and go forward safely with a very high success rate, but we want to ensure that if we do, people are evacuated as soon as possible. Your travel insurance will cover the expenses associated with the accident that occurred during the trek and will also arrange for a helicopter rescue.

The cost of trekking in Nepal has been greatly affected by the recent political upheaval in Nepal, and the current Government has implemented many new taxes and costs to ensure that people working in the hospitality industry, such as hotels, guest houses, restaurants, and tourism are paid fair and equitable wages. Daily needed things prices to hike up, meals and rooms cost in trek increased seasonally, as in the rest of the world, fuel costs have been increasing on a regular basis and due to a severe shortage in Nepal prices vary from day to day.

However, even though we at Above Himalaya Trekking have been affected by these factors, we continue to offer the best services to our customers at a nominal cost. the cost of our standard package for the trek full board package from arrival to departure is USD 1990  per person. in the group 1 guide and 1 porter on 2 people basis, in a big group we can have some cost-sharing and can be the little cheaper basis, if we need to run the trek for just 1 person there is 1 guide who will help to carry the bag and this will make your trek cost down.
